Reflexology for Fertility 🤍
I am proud to be a MARR member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexology and advanced trained by Barbara Scott; Chair of the Association and Author of 'Reflexology for Fertility'.
I am passionate about providing a patient-centred and integrative approach to fertility.
‘Reproflexology’ is more than just Reflexology..
Along with very relaxing treatments you will be offered support and ongoing advice to optimise your fertility health and well-being, whether that be naturally or with assisted conception (Clomid, IVF, IUI, ICSI, surrogacy or donors in IVF cycles) to support couples through all phases of their assisted conception programme.
It is one of the most effective forms of integrated medicine using results from medical testing to measure improvements.
After a full consultation I will explain how Reproductive Reflexology using structured and prescriptive treatment protocols to suit your needs can support you in each stage of your cycle.
We will look at lifestyle and stress factors, nutrition and diet, discussing healthy eating and drinking, plus vitamins/supplements that are recommended for fertility and looking into any changes that could be made to improve your fertility. Sometimes it can be a subtle change that can make the world of difference!
I will discuss menstrual cycles and BBT (Basal Body Temperature) charting with you, explaining how to chart and enhance your chances of conception. (You'd be very surprised at how many women think they are ovulating when they are not, especially when relying on costly (OPK) ovulation prediction kits. Charting gives us an in-depth view as to what exactly is happening in your cycle, each and everyday.
Give you a treatment plan to suit your needs and this includes me regularly reviewing your charts too.
I will teach you some hand reflexology techniques to support your fertility and conception at home (as appropriate).
Advise you if I feel you might need to consider medical support or investigations, to look into your infertility further.
If you would like any further information, do get in touch!

About Reproductive Reflexologists
Please read the following article to see if this is something you’d like to try.
Can it really help you to get pregnant?
The optimum time to prepare for pregnancy is ideally a minimum of 90/100 days, as it takes 90/100 days for men to develop healthy new sperm, and women to develop healthy new follicles.
Making some positive life style changes is not only going to improve your overall health to optimise your chances of conceiving but it can also help to reduce your chances of miscarriage, help to support and improve your chances of a positive outcome when undergoing your fertility treatment and crucially for the long term health of your developing baby.
But please don’t worry if you’re starting your fertility treatment sooner than the optimum 90 days, there’s still plenty we can do to get you in a good place ready for your treatment.
